While it's "counter to the c-a-p-f interface", the need to combine
several backends is sufficiently common that we need to support it somehow.

I hope a "merge" solution can use a less hackish solution than the
current ":exclusive no".

I'm not convinced with this approach. At least, AFAICS, different users prefer to merge different backends together. For instance, some https://github.com/iquiw/company-ghc users like to merge its results with the plain company-dabbrev-code. Some, I believe, don't.

If the completion function gets to decide that, it would be harder for users to customize.

And anyway, it doesn't seem to help with the distinction between manual and
idle completion,

Indeed, it's a largely orthogonal issue.

I've installed the in-string-or-comment piece of logic that's been missing compared to company-elisp, so this bug should be settled.

The distinction between manual and idle completion doesn't seem to be very useful here, so let's leave that until there's a definite demand for it.
